Stopped in today while up in Milwaukee for the afternoon. Took the brief $5 tour in what was a very clean/neat facility set up to have a "German biergarten" sort of vibe. After which youíre treated to your choice of four out of something like 18 brews on tap to sample along side ten or so different "bottomless" sodas. Our tour guide was very pleasant, but didnít seem as well prepared as he might have been to answer brewing-related questions. Prices for take-out and merch in the gift shop were super cheap. Only points deducted for knowledge of guide and almost complete lack of bourbon barrel aged offerings in gift shop. Overall, highly recommended way to spend a couple hours of your day.

Tour was good and the guide did a good job. The tasting bar and gift shop areas were nice and contained both clothing items as well as beverages. The tasting bar consisted of four samples of almost everything they had. Ambiance was nice with old neon beer signs on the walls and an old world feel. If youíre in Milwaukee, Sprecher is worth a stop.

Came here today to meet some folks - Surprisingly small but quaint brewery in a residential area - your fairly standard, rushed brewery tour that you could just as well apply to pretty much any brewery if you just removed a sentence here and there - four bucks gets you four beer samples, but even this was rushed - we were given access to a "beer garden" after the tour, but they only have room for one tour group at a time, so we were forced out before most people had a chance to use their four tasting tickets (I drink fairly fast, but even I could only get through two and a half beers) - breweries that do this on their tours truly piss me off - I suppose it didnít really matter anyway, since there was nothing on tap or for sale that you canít buy in any liquor store in WI (they did have ten beers on tap, though) - very reasonable prices on the bottled products, though, as well as the growlers (10 bucks with glass, 8 buck refills) - extensive selection of glassware and clothing - it is a decent place, but the organization of their tours with respects to the access to the tasting room really needs work.

Very rustic and interesting brewery. The people are very friendly and give an interactive tour. Beer and sodas are very good. A unique place to stop.

My wife and I went on the tour. Was a bit rushed, but there were 84 people along with us. Good value for what you pay for - $4 = 4 8 oz beers at the end. Good atmosphere.

Went on a tour of the place a couple of years ago and had a pretty good time. The ambiance is average pub style setting, but the tour is lots of fun and informational. The selection is pretty good, though all their beers of course. In addition to the samples after the tour, they have many of their beers on sale in bottles at a very decent price when you leave, and you can buy only singles if you want. The value at that point was pretty good. Overall, a really cool place to go visit once or twice to take the tour and try the beers.

I visited this place with my girlfriend and some good friends (including Singlemalter). The tour itself is pretty fast paced but imformative none the less. It is well worth the $3, ecspecially since you get 4 free 8 oz. drink tickets. Iíve had the opportunity to enjoy many of Sprecherís fine brews in the past, but itís always nice trying them again. Great tour, and great beer all around.

Went out for the tour late last summer. Clean place informative tour... nothing special. THe beer itself is very ordinary and what used to be good has died over the last year or two... I miss the old black bavarian.

Iíve done the tour here a couple times, which is OK.. it was informative and you get to sample some beers at the end, but I like Lakefrontís approach better. Iíve had some trouble with the gift shop where I call in advance to see if they have Barrel-Aged something-or-other, they check and give me the affirmative, then I drive out there to find people that donít know what Iím talking about that try to sell me a different beer (this has happened more than once, and itís frustrating as all hell).
